Lush, Bold and Beautiful by Jane Kent

Lush, Bold and Beautiful by Jane KentIf life were a television series, then Gabriel Benton’s life has suddenly become an episode in the classic Twilight Zone…where nothing is as he thought it was…

When Gabe returns home to his family’s Niagara Peninsula vineyard, after close to ten years in Europe, for the funeral of the father he’s only recently reconciled with, there is more than one shock waiting for him.  The first is that his father has not cut him out of his will as Gabe had always supposed; Gabe is now a co-owner of the Stone Crock and Oak Barrel Winery with his mother…and his ex-wife, Ayanna.  And second, Ayanna is thought of and treated as a daughter by his mother, and she and her sister have apparently been living with his parents for nearly a decade…something that no one had bothered to tell him.  Third, sometime between trying to poison him—figuratively, not literally—with her cooking during their brief marriage and Gabe’s return to Canada, his ex-wife has become the highly-regarded chef of the winery’s onsite restaurant.

And life has a few more surprises in store for Gabe, not the least of which is being blind-sided by the very unexpected sexual attraction he still feels every time he’s in the same room with Ayanna.  It doesn’t take a rocket scientist or a relationship counselor to tell Gabe what he already knows…Ayanna would likely throw herself into the Niagara gorge or over the Falls before letting him anywhere near her body—or her heart—ever again.  She has every reason to hate the cheating, vice-addicted wild boy he’d once been…and he can’t really blame her.

So, exactly how, in the name of Dionysus, god of ritual madness and ecstasy, is he supposed to make this partnership work?

  1. Hi Jessica! My favorite Canadian huh? That is a tough one but right now I think I am most proud of a Saskatchewan Roughrider football player named Rob Bagg. He has been with the Riders for a few years and what makes him so amazing to me is that he is coming off TWO knee injuries! He tore the ACL in each knee, in 2011 & 2012. This year he is playing supremely well with running TDs in two games! This is poised to be his best season yet all because he worked hard and never gave up even when things seemed practically impossible.

  2. First of all, you guys need a bigger bus (and preferably newer with A/C) . I really enjoyed the Canadian facts. You left one out: The original name for your beautiful, but rather cold at time, land was Cnd Only when a reporter asked how to spell it, the guy replied C …aye..N….aye…D….aye

    I made that joke up myself, from all the time I spent wandering in the woods and seak kayaking around your beautiful place. (Some of your islands have terribly unhealthy eating habits–you should make them behave better. For example, bacon grease is not an acceptable frying substance. On one island I ate so many carrots, finding nothing else I could eat, that I turned orange.–not making that up.)

    Still, I love Canada and all the fabulous people you listed, especially the singing astronaut.

    1. Yes, Canada is very beautiful. So much to explore. 🙂

      And Canada comes from the Iroquoian word kanata, meaning “village.” It was a mistake made by Jacques Cartier back in 1535. 😉

  3. Oh, boy…you’ve picked a subject after my own heart. I really love the guys from Sloan (all their records are amazing, and Chris Murphy and Jay Ferguson in particular are very sweet and fun to talk to in person), but I also love former San Jose Shark/current Minnesota Wild forward Torrey Mitchell (bright and conscientious, funny in interviews, brilliant penalty killer with some highlight-reel goals who somehow ends up unsung wherever he goes).

    1. I was lucky enough to see Sloan in concert several (fifteen) years ago when I was in university. 🙂

      1. It must be a totally different experience seeing them in Canada, since they (deservedly!) play huge venues there, and more often. It’s always small clubs here (and fairly infrequently in California), but they’re always fun to watch!

        1. It was actually a large club that they played at. So long ago. LOL And I saw another awesome Canadian band there, (my fav) Econoline Crush. 🙂

  4. Wow there are sooo many Canadians that I could choose from, extremely talented, very attractive…in Sports, Actors/Actresses, Models, Authors….but I think I’ll select someone that no one else will….Pamela Anderson. I have always thought she was just so absolutely beautiful & she’s a huge activist for animal rights.
    Thank you for this having this Fantastic Giveaway. I’m not a Member of Facebook or Twitter, but I enter what I could on the Raffle.

    1. I agree! There are so many Canadian celebrities to choose from. Pamala Anderson has come so far, as I remember watching her when Baywatch first aired. Am I showing my age? LOL

      1. Yes she’s definitely come a long way…but it seems no matter what stage in her career & how Beautiful she is, she always seems such a genuine, nice person. I met her once in Altantic City, NJ & she couldn’t be nicer to all her Fans, taking as much time as needed to say Hi & sign autographs for everyone there.
        OMG I’m really showing my age then LOL, I remember her making her dedut as the original “Tool Time Girl” on the TV sitcom, Home Improvement. 🙂

  5. Afternoon Jess!
    Fave CDNs for me is Roberta Bondar — first CDN Woman in Space. And of course, Terry Fox. I admire both.

    Glad to be a part of this event. Thanks so much!

  6. That’s a tough question but I would say one of my favorites is Alanis Morissette. I really enjoy her music, love her voice.

    1. Yes, she is very popular. In Canadian music, I love Econoline Crush, Hedley, and Chantal Kreviazuk. I remember watching Jacob Hoggart, the lead singer from Hedley, on Canadian Idol. I wanted him to win, though I think he has by the success of his band. 🙂

  7. Oh gosh there are so many great Canadians out there, always have been a big fan of Michael J. Fox, have to admire him for all he has done acting and for what he is doing for Parkinson research.

      1. Oh yeah I think my first TV crush was Alex P Keaton! He is the reason I still think that geeks are sexy! 🙂

  8. Great news, everyone! Shiela Stewart, another Canadian author, has added a signed ebook of Awaken the Demon to the giveaway!

    Here’s the blurb:
    Running from an abusive Fiancé, changing her name, Missy Green is looking for a new life. Taking temporary refuge in a group called The StarrGazers, she does her best to blend in. Problem is, the owner, Draco Starr has put his sights on her.
    Born and raised in the pits of hell, Draco was sent to earth to collect souls for Satan. Having served his time he starts his own business. When word gets out that a child born from demon and human is alive, he is determined to find her and make her his own.

    Discovering who Draco really is terrifies Missy, but it’s nothing compared to finding out she too is a demon. Coming to terms with who she is, dealing with her attraction to Draco, Missy begins to embrace her new life. Until her fiancé enters the picture and changes her life forever.

  9. Hi Jessica,
    well besides you, I think my favorite Canadians are Stacey Espino~i adore her books~ and Howie Mandel.

    thanks for the chance at such a great contest.
